Diana is a goddess. She is the goddess of the moon, a virgin, a hunter, and protector of animals, the forest, children, and women in childbirth. According to Roman mythology, she was the daughter of Latona (herself the daughter of the moon and the sky) and Jupiter. Diana represents to me all that is wild, creative, and untamed. She is the goddess not only of hunting, but of wild things and animals, of the moon, and of childbirth and children. In my opinion, she must be one of the oldest Goddesses, as her name means either 'Divine' or 'Light'. The Greek goddess Artemis is her equivalent.
An excellent resource on goddesses from a myriad of cultures, including a specific resource on Diana and one on Diana's wilder side, Artemis can be found at Thalia Took's site, which apart from some delightful art, houses OGOD, a.k.a. the Obscure Goddess Online Directory! Check it out; it's fabulous.

About the site
Divine is the only fanlisting for the goddess Diana listed at the Fanlistings Network. The site was originally opened by Janet, who was kind enough to allow me to adopt it in July 2006. If you haven't come across a site of this type before, a fanlisting is a place for all fans of a particular author, movie, book, etc. to connect. To my mind, it's a great excuse to build a little tribute site. :) There are about 50,000 fanlistings in existence and the number is growing every day. Some are simple fanlistings and some are part of a much bigger website. Find out more about the fanlistings phenomenon at the Fanlistings Network.
